There is a two manual tracker console on eBay:   http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3D2576068482   In pieces, some sweat equity required. But it is a hobby right? Wasn't someone looking for something like this a while back?   ---john.      
(back) Subject: Control of MIDI organs From: <tadstone@ix.netcom.com> Date: Tue, 25 Nov 2003 08:39:08 -0800 (GMT-08:00)   I am gathering information about how various manufacturers control organs = (pipe and toaster) using MIDI. Everyone seems to use a different scheme = for stop selection. Some use MIDI program changes, others use Control = Codes, SysEx messages, etc. Allen Organs apparently use the MIDI = "Non-register parameter number" (NRPN) codes. Does anyone have a list of = the stop names corresponding to the codes they use, or know where I might = find such a list? Such information may be in the Owner's Manuals, to which = I have no access. I would post the list to my website if anyone can help.   If you are interested in a detailed tutorial about MIDI subjects, go to J = Glatt's excellent website: http://www.borg.com/~jglatt/tutr/miditutr.htm   If anyone is interested in a discussion about the schemes used to select = stops from MIDI, perhaps I could write something up and post it on my = website.   Craig Williams Scotts Valley, CA

It packs nicely into a 26' Ryder truck.

I remember seeing this in its, hmmm, third (?) home-- James = Dale's house near Annapolis. There's an article in the piporg-L archives I wrote = in 1998 or so, which includes a passable run-down and rank/stop matrix = listing (er, I think!). The organ was originally a house organ for a lawyer in Washington, DC.   Er, I found the matrix listing: ----------------------------------------------------------------- RANK PIPES PEDAL GREAT SWELL 16 Stopped flute 97 16 8 8 4 3 2 16 8 4 3 2 16 Dulciana 92 16 10 8 8 4 8 4 3 8 Viole d'Orchestre 85 8 16 8 8 4 2 8 Diapason 73 8 8 French Horn 73 8 8 8 Vox Humana 73 8 4 8 4 Chimes 21 x x   couplers: Great to- 8 16 (8) 4 Swell to- 8 16 8 4 16 (8) 4   where 10 =3D 10 2/3; 3 =3D 2 2/3; and (8) =3D unison off   There is additionally a pedal 32' resultant, although it is not clear whether this uses the 10 2/3 dulciana or another 10 2/3 off the stopped flute. -----------------------------------------------------------------   This organ can fit into a modest space, and, last I saw, included both 16' bourdon and 16' dulciana extensions. I think the dulciana was mitered to about 10 feet, and in Jim Dale's place, they were horizontal, basically looping around 2-1/2 sides of the unit chest.   Other cool things in 5967-- a vox in a box, a french horn, and a cute 2 manual curved rail stop tablet console! One stumbling block for me was = that the chests were longer than 8' with their winding intact, and would've = been difficult to fit into my particular chamber arrangement. So I didn't go after it in the first place, with some regret.   It seems a shame to see it sitting though. Hopefully someone can give it a good home-- it's certainly a very nice, modest-sized instrument.   Frank Vanaman Baltimore   -----Original Message----- From: DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org [mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Ron Natalie Sent: Tuesday, November 25, 2003 6:10 PM To: Residence Organ List Subject: [Residence Organs] Organ available, immediate removal     I still have Moller opus 5967 availalbe.
